Ian Sweet Debuts Video For “f*ckthat”
Ian Sweet is the project of Jilian Medford. Today, she has shared a new single/video, “f*ckthat,” via Polyvinyl, and announces a North American tour. Produced by Manitoba duo deadmen (Royal Canoe), Medford’s voice soars in jubilant defiance over a pulsating bass line and four-on-the-floor stomp, sending its caller in question headfirst into voicemail. Medford elaborates on the track: “My phone causes me a lot of anxiety! I really only like to use it to take videos and pictures of my dog. This song is about not wanting to answer calls anymore and wishing I could just throw it out the window and disassociate from its evil/stress inducing technology.” The self-directed video was edited by previous collaborator Will Duncan.
Ian Sweet hits the road, in spring 2022 in support of her current LP Show Me How You Disappear. For many, this will be the first time to hear this collection of songs live. Tickets go on sale Fri. Oct. 1st at 10am local time and a full list of dates can be found below.
